media archeology - a conversation -
The important stuff is always in the footnotes.

"Media archaeology is an approach to media studies that has emerged over the last two decades. It borrows from Michel Foucault, Walter Benjamin, and Friedrich Kittler, but also diverges from all of these theorists to form a unique set of tools and practices."

The Paratext's the Thing - The Chronicle Review
Don't you just hate it when new media wonks appropriate a perfectly useful critical term like paratext and bend it to their liking? Remember when the term deconstruction really meant something more than *traditional analysis*? Don't you just love it when the Chronny Review at least lets you know that your critical hobbyhorse is now the latest trending? Paratexts in media and money.

Andreessen’s Advice To Old Media: “Burn The Boats”
is longstanding recommendation that they should shut down their print editions and embrace the Web wholeheartedly. “You gotta burn the boats,” he told me, “you gotta commit.” His point is that if traditional media companies don’t burn their own boats, somebody else will.

The Ed Techie: Social media learning principles
Martin Weller on six principles to keep in mind while designing networked instruction.
1. <embed> is the universal acid of the web – we should build around it.
2. Simple with reach trumps complex with small audience.
3. Sharing is a motivation to participation - so make it easy and rewarding to do.
4. Start simple and let others build on top
5. Providing limitations frames input (Cf twitter, 12seconds, etc)
6. Complexity resides in the network not the application

Birkerts - Resisting the Kindle - The Atlantic (March 2, 2009)
I see in the turning of literal pages—pages bound in literal books—a compelling larger value, and perceive in the move away from the book a move away from a certain kind of cultural understanding, one that I’m not confident that we are replacing, never mind improving upon.

MediaShift . Embedded at NYU::Old Thinking Permeates Major Journalism School | PBS
Embedded student reports on NYU: "NYU does not offer the kinds of classes I want. It continues to focus its core requirements around learning how to work your way up the traditional journalism ladder. Here is the thinking I find here:

1. Get an internship at a magazine or newspaper. “This is good for your resume.”
2. Bring the New York Times to class. The hard copy. “It’s the only way to get the news.”
3. Learn how to write for a magazine or newspaper. “Writing for blogs or websites is not journalism.”
4. Become an editor at a magazine or newspaper. “This is the only respectable position.”
